After working my tail off all week, I am so very happy that I finally get to announce the release of two new patterns in my Pattern Shop. Yay!!
So, these two are up and available both on the Pattern Shop on this website and in my Etsy Pattern Shop.
With the Hydrangea pattern, I do have an alternate leaf pattern available in the file. So if you don't want to do the netting around the edges, there's another option included along with the fancy shmancy netted leaves.
For the Lily of the Valley, it's important that I note that the pattern uses smaller sized beads than what most people are used to using. It's the only way to get such small flowers to have any amount of detail. Don't let that scare you from trying it, though! 15/0 beads are not that hard to work with, but after working with them for a while the 11/0 will start to look huge.
Now, the berry tutorial that Suzanne Steffenson and I are working on is almost done. So far we have strawberries, blackberries, blueberries.. and the raspberry section is almost done. There's one more berry technique to document after that and then a fun project. I will be pushing to get that finished this next week, so watch for another update. I'm so excited!!
Feels so good to be able to get stuff done.
